Sophie Hyde - 52 Tuesdays.
Australian Sophie Hyde won Sundance's World Cinema Director Award, and Berlin's youth jury award, the Crystal Bear, with this striking first feature. Set in Adelaide on 52 consecutive Tuesdays, the film follows a year in the life of Billie (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) who, along with the usual social and sexual questioning that 16-year-olds go through, is also responding to the gender transition being undertaken by her mother (played by non-gender-conforming Del Herbert-Jane).
See the trailer HERE.
Please note if you want to see Sophie's film the screenings are on the 2 days PRECEDING this event.
Screening times: 52 Tuesdays

Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine - The Galapagas Affair
Almost improperly entertaining, this documentary whodunit spins a tale of utopian ideals, sexual intrigue? and murderous jealousy - all on tiny Floreana, one of the Galapagos Islands. The events it describes were a media sensation in the 30s, thanks in large measure to the enthusiastic on-film cavorting of the story's flamboyant femme fatale. Filmmakers Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller (Ballets Russes) have restored a cornucopia of reportage, archival film and photography and enlisted top-line voice talent, including Cate Blanchett, to explore this bizarre tale anew.
